COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Springs Streets Division is changing its approach to snowplowing after a mess Friday, when crews had trouble getting the roads cleared.

Motorists say roads were snow-packed and slippery because trucks were caught in rush hour traffic and crews were unable to deploy multiple plows on major highways.

According to KOAA-TV (https://tinyurl.com/mrtbhoa ), the streets division also blamed a shortage of de-icing materials.
